Interview with Steven Iliadis

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Recently there was a local show where local bands paid tribute to famous bands such as Green Day. Fall Out Boy etc. so i was auditioned for the rythm guitarist for the My Chemical Romance tribute band. When we started the rehearsals i realized that the lead guitarist changed some parts that he couldn't play, so i suggested since i knew most of the songs i should play the solos everyone aggred with my suggestion and in the end i played at that show as a lead guitarist.

  3. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  4. A: I was inspired by a lot of musicians and music genres. Some of them are My chemical Romance,the GazettE, Twenty One Pilots, Luna sea, Cinder Road, Daft Punk, Halsey, Beatles, Guns n Roses,Against the Current, coldrain, VAMPS, L'Arc-en-Ciel,Yngwie Malmsteen etc.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: If i had the chance, i would have wanted to work with Gerard way. Gerard Way right now is a solo artist but he was also the lead singer of My chemical Romance a band that was a huge influence on me. Gerard Way has this great imagination that almost all of his albums are concept records and each record tells a different story as a result each album becomes a whole new world to experience and explore musically and visually.

  20. A: I mostly play pop,rock,hard rock, heavy rock and punk rock songs. However i also play various music genres such as jazz, blues etc.

  22. A: My strongest skill is my guitar playing.

  23. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  24. A: When it comes to the song i tried to bring genuineness, melodiousness, preciseness and innovation. When i was growning up, melodic heavy bands were a huge influence on me so i try to bring that to the songs that i write plus with the competion within the music industry innovetion is also a huge factor to the song writing process.
